The Prodigal Son Returns ....

Sometimes I wonder what really goes on in the head of a band leader, when they would take back a designer who left in the middle of producing costume prototypes to head ANOTHER band. A new band which was coming to "CRUSH" the designer's former band, the former band being a band with which the designer worked with for several years, I might add.

So, big meeting took place last week, and the prodigal son returned asking to be taken back into the flock. Lost money with the new band he said, had no "creative control" he said, ironic since his reason for leaving the former band was "lack of creative control"!

Sources say that even though this designer abruptly left the band last year and was touted as bandleader of the competitor he has been welcomed back and will be collaborating on designs with at least three section leaders.

Imagine that! Well you can imagine my curiosity as to what this reunion will bring. I don't know how some people even have the face to eat their words so publicly but I guess the reason he is back is because when it comes to costumes for 2010 it will be a competition of who can be bigger, bolder, brighter and the BEST! And this is not only competition between OTHER bands but within the band as well! I heard one designer is quite perturbed at having lost the title of having the "sexiest" costumes in the band to a newbie renowned for her barely there rio-esque costumes.

And let us not even get to the upcomning showdown for the title of best costumes for 2010; this will be a no holds barred, all out band war that will be fought with the battle of the beads and bikinis!

Things are spicing up!

New Band Alert for 2010

Coming out of the quiet that is post Carnival 2009, news has reached me that we can expect a new band on the scene for 2010.

Word is that Showtime, a private section with big band Legacy, will be breaking away to form their own band.

Only time will tell if this new band actually gets off the ground.
